The Covid pandemic prevents us from gathering for face-to-face steward training but we are pleased to offer this interim Steward Basics webinar. This webinar is for you if you are a steward but have not yet attended our Steward Fundamentals course.

As space is limited, registrations are being accepted on a first come, first-served basis. The deadline for registration is February 23, 2022.

By the end of this webinar, you will understand:

→ your rights and responsibilities as a steward

→ how to get started as a steward

→ the grievance procedure


→ how to handle disciplinary grievances

This webinar does not replace our in-person STEP UP! and Steward Fundamentals courses. Once we can offer these in-person courses safely, you will be invited to register for them.

To join this online training, you will need: 

→ a computer with internal audio or external speakers, a microphone and built-in camera

→ a high-speed internet connection

→ a relatively quiet space, a pad of paper and a pen and a copy of your collective agreement 

*It is possible but very challenging to do this on a smartphone.

 You can request a union-paid leave of absence from your employer for this training. We will send you a leave-of-absence form to submit to your supervisor.



Will you come?
